Project: April Black and White Swap

*Updated May 30 - the handbag arrived safely "Comment: I LOVE my beautiful new black & white fabric handbag!!! It is just perfect and I will start using it right away. Thank you for this wonderful gift." So now I can show you the whole thing...
Finished... 1 black and white item, but just a preview until it arrives in Ontario, Canada for my random swap buddy in this April Black and White Swap organised by The Shopping Sherpa.

How to girlify a man shirt

Another Wardrobe re-fashion...I bought this man-shirt at an op shop on the $1 rack, I quite liked the stripes in chocolate, tan and beige on white, but it was decidedly box shaped and dull. To make it more feminine, I got out the red paint (everything I wear seems to have red accents right now!), drew my own stencil by hand and went to work...

I also chopped off the sleeves, gathered them and re-attached them to the outside of the shoulder seam - quite pretty and very unique!

Worn here with some neck spaghetti as seen here.

On the left is a (slightly) batwing top in stretch print green and black fabric - I have had the fabric for years and never knew what to do with it, then suddenly! - very comfy and a bit chic.

On the right is my neck spaghetti, worn dripping at the back, something easy and colourful!
